Amie Inamdar Schuetz, PT, DPT, COMT
Amie attended Saint Louis University, where she graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2012. In 2013, Amie began to pursue additional training in Maitland-based orthopedic manual therapy, a form of hands-on treatment techniques that respects the patient as the center of the treatment plan. She earned her Certification in Orthopedic Manual Therapy (COMT) in 2015. The Maitland manual therapy approach is respected worldwide as an effective and safe way to evaluate patients to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, restore movement, and maximize function. Amie works with a wide variety of patient diagnoses.
The Manual Therapy Difference . . .
Amie knows that you have your choice of where you can attend physical therapy. The nature of a manual therapy or “hands-on approach” is that it will provide a unique level of treatment tailored to each individual patient and their respective pain or functional limitation. Amie wants you to feel that physical therapy is worth your time and commitment, and she wants you to get results and treatment that you could not necessarily achieve independently. She is a firm believer in combining manual therapy with appropriate exercises to address specific weaknesses and movement impairments. Amie also recognizes that some patients require more of an exercise approach tailored to their specific skill sets, and she likes treating athletes and weekend warriors of all ages and skill levels.
On Motivating Patients . . .
Having been in and out of physical therapy numerous times in her life, Amie is well-acquainted with the frustrations that often accompany pain when it comes to every day activities and hobbies. As such, she is driven to ensure that her patients are able to resume those activities without pain in as little time as possible.
